Chronic fatigue syndrome may indicate a systemic disease affecting organs

A new study has shown that chronic fatigue should not be considered a psychosomatic disorder because it is a much more serious condition.

Researchers from the National Institute US health authorities have concluded that the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is not psychosomatics, but various biological changes occurring in the body. This was reported by Evening Moscow, citing a publication in the journal Nature Communications.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by pathological fatigue and inability to cope with physical or intellectual work. In addition, unexplained headaches and joint pains and sleep disturbances occur. Typically, the development of such a syndrome was associated with problems affecting the psycho-emotional sphere, such as stress, depression, overwork, and excessive amounts of news received. But a new study has discovered biological markers associated with this condition.

“People with chronic fatigue syndrome have a higher resting heart rate, as well as a prolonged and excessively strong immune response that depletes T cells and less diverse gut bacteria,” the article reports.
Scientists believe that the changes they found in the immune system and intestines in people with chronic fatigue have a negative effect on the central nervous system. As a result of this effect, the concentration of catecholamines, substances that regulate the functioning of the nervous system during movement, decreases. The consequence of this is the emergence of unfavorable symptoms experienced by people suffering from abnormal fatigue.

Thus, scientists emphasize, chronic fatigue syndrome can occur as a systemic disease affecting a number of organs.

“In general We show that chronic fatigue syndrome manifests itself uniquely biologically, affecting multiple organs. This is a systemic disease. And people living with it deserve to have their experience taken seriously,” said co-author of the project, neurologist Avindra Nat.
